Bosh diswasher SHE45M02UC/48 doesnt stop when I open the door


That is the drain pump that is running, and it indicates that there is water in the base of the unit. You will need to unplug the dishwasher and pull it out. You can tip it forward to drain the water out of the bottom through the holes in front. Have some towels ready to catch the water. Now if you plug the dishwasher back in, the pump should not run But now comes the hard part - figuring out where the leak is coming from and fixing it. It could be from a hose, the drain pump, or the main pump. Bosch dishwashers are notoriously hard to work on, so I recommend calling in a professional DW repairman.

How to repair or fix a Dishwasher that makes noise


Noise can come from faulty parts, but it also may be caused by improperly loaded dishes. Check your owner’s manual for proper loading methods.
When the dishwasher is cool (in other words, not just after a wash cycle), look in the openings around the pump at the bottom of the dishwasher’s interior to be sure no implements or hard debris such as bones, fruit pits, or silverware are stuck in them.
Also check that your dishwasher is sitting level. Adjust the feet beneath the unit by screwing them up or down. If there are locknuts on the feet, make sure they are tight.
A thumping or chattering sound during the filling cycle usually indicates that the inlet valve needs to be replaced. Unless you’re handy with this sort of repair, this is a job for a professional repairperson.
Last but not least, you may need to adjust the amount of detergent you are using based on the hardness of your water. The chart below indicates the amount of detergent you should use based on the grains of minerals per gallon in your water. (Your water supplier can direct you to a lab to have your water tested if you do not know how hard it is.)

My machine says it needs salt. My glasses have a white cloudy film. Is this related? Where do you put in the salt?. I see no container. How do I determine the hardness of my water?


You should be able to insert the salt into a container at the bottom of the machine. There should be a screw-top on it. Refer to the user manual on whether you need salt, and how to insert it. The manual/ documentation may have come with a single- use hardness indicator. Alternatively, you can purchase hardness indicator strips. If your electric kettle/ shower has large amounts of white calcium 'fur' in it, they this is a sure indication of hard water, and you should consider using salt

Dishwasher not getting enough water in either drawer, although top drawer gets more. Dishwasher keeps beeping during cycle and reads not enough water and then stops running until you press the start...


This sounds like a hard water deposit problem.
Check your water inlet valve for a screen and see if its clogged. Also it may just be a water valve/solenoid problem. As in, it's too crusted up to float up and down.
Some models have a water fill timer, while others use a water fill/pressure switch. This may also bear inspection.
The beep you hear during your cycle is indicating that your water level is too low to cover the heating element, which can cause cracking and lead to a short.

You live in a hard water area. Even though dishwasher tablets have salt included you may have to fill the machine with extra salt. (its the large srew top cap in the bottom of your machine, open it and fill it with dishwaher salt your machine came with a large funnel to help you do this) you will have to remove the bottom drawer to do this. next make sure you have rinse aid installed in the door of your machine, next to where you put the tablets in (don't buy cheap rinse aid it's not worth it) when its full of rinse aid the indicator will turn dark, will need both salt and rince aid about every 30 cycles.

JDB4950 Doesnt clean and i think hard water is the blame


Hard water is tough to overcome in a dishwasher, but there are some things you can do to compensate. First, use more detergent than normal. I have hard water and I put extra detergent in on every load. I just put it on the door when I fill the regular detergent dispenser. Also make sure that you always use rinse aid.

The new tablet detergents seem to work better for hard water, but they are expensive. Try a few different brands and see which one works best. A good way to judge is to look at the heating element and see if it has white scale deposits on it. If you use a box of a new detergent brand and it looks better or worse than it did before, it's a good indication.

My Bosch Classixx dishwasher is using all the salt in one wash.Why and how do I resolve?


In order to rinse dishes and glasses satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. containing little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on crockery and glasses, etc. If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, i.e. decalcified, so that it can be used in the dishwasher. his is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher. The water softener, that is the required amount of salt, is set up according to how hard the tap water is.


Setting up the water softener

Determine the level of hardness of your tap water. Your local water company or service agent can help you with this. Identify setting from the following water hardness table.


Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch to ON, before releasing the programme button again.

The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was preset in the factory.

To change the setting:

Press the B programme button.

Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching 7 the display starts at 0 again.

Set the main switch OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.

Approx. 4 litres of water are required for regenerating the water softening system. The overall water consumption per load can therefore be increased by between 0 and a maximum of 4 litres according to the water hardness setting.

Dishes are coming out with white residue after complete cycle. The filter has been cleaned. Repairman indicated that problem may be the motor and quoted $450 to replace. Any other ideas? Thanks


yes, it is your water and not the dishwasher. hard water leaves white residue when dried in a dishwasher. www.dishwasherfilter.com makes a prodcut for this problem. it filters the water entering your dishwasher and will leave your dishes looking crystal clear. it is very affordable(like 70 bucks) and has a money back guarantee. you will love it.

Streaks on glassware/silverware


usually indicative of clogged spray heads, or spray arms not spinning, too much detergent for your water type, wrong detergent, and low water temp.

Check the manual for amounts of detergent to use based on your water hardness.
